Organ Symphony – PSO Concert 2

Pushing the boundaries of symphonic music

BEETHOVEN       Symphony No. 6, Pastoral

SAINT-SAËNS     Symphony No. 3, Organ Symphony

The Pastoral Symphony is one of Beethoven’s most ground-breaking, often described as a seminal example of program music. Yet, for all its sound-painting of birdsong and thunderstorms, the composer considered it primarily a musical expression of his feelings for nature. The Organ Symphony of Saint-Saëns is no less innovative, pushing the boundaries of symphonic form.

There’s a connection with nature there, too, for anyone who saw the 1995 movie Babe, in which themes from the symphony featured in Nigel Westlake’s acclaimed score. We welcome Amy Johansen, University of Sydney Organist and Carillonist and an internationally renowned recitalist.
